Employers are criticizing the lack of transferable skills that new graduates have and the pressure is on for business schools to produce graduates with employable skills. UK 'Widening Participation' initiatives have also resulted in students with a wider variety of learning experiences and abilities. "The Business Skills Handbook" will equip business students with the study skills, interpersonal skills and professional skills that they need for successful study and employment. The text is packed with examples and case studies relevant to a range of business settings, including HRM, marketing and finance, so that students can truly understand how the skills they are learning apply in practice.
